Tahlee's in hospital on her 5th night with me :( - Page 2

post #31 of 46
Thread Starter 
I actually went up there yesterday to try and talk to someone and was told that she had "obviously" gotten it from one of my other cats (interesting since they don't know what it is, my other cats aren't sick and they haven't seen any of them since it happened) and that it was no longer anything to do with them So I am trying not to think about that, but to concentrate on getting Tahlee 100% better. I wish there was more I could do, but if they are refusing to do anything about it, there isn't much I can do

I just saw this and I'm so relieved Tahlee seems better. I'm sure that no matter what you did the shelter would have tried to turn it back on you. Not that I blame them that much - I'm sure they run on a shoestring. It's really sad about your vet, though. I thought one of our BEST experiences when Elsa was so sick was the caring vet staff. Thinking and praying for Tahlee!

Hugs to you and Tahlee! And it sounds like it's past time for you to get a new vet!

Hey everyone. Big hugs to everyone for all the kind messages and support. I picked her up from the vet a couple of hours ago and she in now safely back in her room. The vet has given me a five day course of Trizine 120. They're little green tablets. She has also been put on a diet of the Hills Z/D for the rest of her life. I am going to speak to a different vet about the diet........Coz as some know, I've decided I'm not really too keen on the Hills foods. If anyone has any advice or an opinion on the Waltham foods, I'd be glad to hear it.

Hey guys, I thought I'd share some pics I took just a little while ago......

Here you can see her shaved neck (they took the blood test from there) and her shaved right leg from the drip.....



And here she is, having a bit of a rest in her basket.........it must have taken a bit out of her I'd say.....

Oh, she is such a lovely little girl! I'm so glad she's home with her loving Meowmy. Hope she continues to improve.

Thanks everyone. Well, she wasn't 100% keen on the Z/D canned food, so I went and got some of the Z/D dry food and she's hoovered it down. So looks like her apetite is back with no problems! She's also been drinking water, haven't seen her use the litter tray yet, but will check in the morning and see how she's gone.

I'm sorry they are so rude. It really impacts the treatment of the kitties! Maybe later you can give them a written complaint, so the manager will be aware of this issue. I totally understand that sometimes a kitty seems fine when adopted, but develops an illness. Or the adoptive family watches the cat more closely than shelter staff, so pick up on an existing illness. But to be told that an animal that just left the facility is critically ill, and do nothing is reprehensible.


I'm glad Tahlee is better. She is a lovely kitty, and I'm sure your adopting her and intervening medically saved her life! Kudos to you!!!

I'm so glad to hear that she's doing better. She's a little sweetie, and looks so much like Rascal! I would be upset about the shelter's reaction, too

Thanks. Even though it has cost me a fortune and has been really hard, I am still so glad she picked me. The worst thing about this shelter experience.....it was the manager I was speaking to in the end I found out, so unfortunately I don't hold out much hope for them or the kitties there But then, when I went there to adopt her, they were as nice as pie.......so maybe it'll be ok......

Thank goodness Tahlee picked you just when she needed someone on her side. I wouldn't like to think what would have happened if she'd gotten sick at that shelter.

Give her extra cuddles for me, and I hope she continues to feel better. She's gorgeous!
